    Late last night, while reading a stream of apocalyptic rhetoric about the repeal of net neutrality and the ďend of the internet as we know it,Ē I reached the shattering conclusion that one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies was wrong. The movie is the 2004 Brad Bird masterpiece, The Incredibles. The line comes from the villain, Syndrome, who outlines his plan to make ďeveryone super,Ē because when ďeveryone is super [he chuckles maliciously] no one will be.Ē Itís a great line, and it seems to convey an important truth. When you make everyone or everything...
  • End this nonsense- make them testify under oath!

    A new example on Thursday was The New York Timesí statement that a Russian agency ďspent $100,000 on [Facebookís] platform to influence the United States presidential election last yearĒ Ė when the Times knows that statement is not true. According to Facebook, only 44 percent of that amount appeared before the U.S. presidential election in 2016 (i.e., $44,000) and few of those ads addressed the actual election. And, we know that the Times is aware of the truth because it was acknowledged in a Times article in early October. As part of that article, Times correspondents Mike Isaac and Scott...

    Hey boys and girls! Are you ready to play a fun new game called "Detect Liberal Bias?" Here's how it works... Just go online to any newspaper or magazine. In their seach engines, enter the term "Strzok." Do you see any search results? If so, then add "insurance" for "Strzok insurance." If you see no search results, congratulations! You have just detected strong liberal bias in the periodical you were searching. The reason that this is a strong indication of liberal bias is that the story line developed by the mainstream media is that while FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter...

    I've spent my career as an advocate for economic justice, fighting for basic fairness for working families. It wasn't until this past year that I began fighting for my own life. It's that fight that led me to get arrested protesting the Republican tax plan in Washington, and that led me into debating it with Sen. Jeff Flake at 30,000 feet in the air on my way home. I never thought I'd be in this position. A year ago, I was healthy, taking morning runs on the California coast and looking forward to a new life with my newborn son,...
  • Fake News: CNNís Jim Acosta Claims Ď1,552 Mass Shootingsí Since Sandy Hook

    On December 14, 2017, CNNís Jim Acosta claimed America has witnessed ď1,552 mass shootingsĒ since the heinous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School. This means Acosta is claiming an average of approximately 310 mass shootings a year for each of the past five years. It is important to note that he attempts to bolster this claim via information provided by a tracking site sponsored by gun controllers. That tracking siteĖthe Gun Violence ArchiveĖdiverges from FBI definition of a mass shooting as four fatalities or more in one incident so as to include shootings in which no fatalities occur. Acosta tweeted:
  • Putin Happy With Return on Investment for Hacking 2016 Election, Officials Say

    For less than a half-million dollars, Russian President Vladimir Putin got what he most wanted out of the Kremlin's campaign to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election: a destabilized American democracy and Hillary Clinton out of his hair, U.S. officials say. The Kremlin views its influence campaign, which it called an "active measures" operation, as a remarkable return on investment, U.S. officials briefed on post-election intelligence told The Washington Post. Not only did it shake up Americans' faith in their democratic process, but the operation also achieved Putin's primary goal of stymying Clinton's White House aspirations, one official told the...

    The most important poll number to come out this week had nothing to do with defeated Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. It had to do with Fox News and Donald Trump. We'll get to the numbers in a minute. First: some disclosure. I'm a Fox contributor and a Trump skeptic (aka a former "Never Trumper"). That makes this an awkward column to write, for reasons that should be fairly obvious. Regardless, I don't think I am revealing any state or corporate secrets that Fox is the president's favorite news network. He says as much all the time. According to CBS'...
  • Political Journalists Have Themselves to Blame for Sinking Credibility

    "Our record as journalists in covering this Trump story and the Russian story is pretty good," legendary reporter Carl Bernstein recently claimed. Pretty good? If there's a major news story over the past 70 years that the American media has botched more often because of bias and wishful thinking, I'd love to hear about it. Four big scoops recently run by major news organizations -- written by top reporters and, presumably, churned through layers of scrupulous editing -- turned out to be completely wrong. Reuters, Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal and others reported that special counsel Robert Mueller's office had...

    Yeah, good luck with that. The perpetual outrage machine that is the left's pathological loathing for President Trump keeps reaching new lows in absurdity, albeit only on an hourly basis. Plenty of liberals have labeled Trump's tweet slamming Democrat Senator and potential 2020 opponent Kirsten Gillibrand as "sexual harassment." But liberal radio host Thom Hartmann went beyond that and described it -- I'm not making this up -- as grounds for impeachment.Here's Hartmann suggesting this during a conversation with a caller to his show on Tuesday -- Your browser does not support the audio element.

  • NBC Omits Popular Deductions Staying in GOP Tax Bill, Parrots Dems

    Congressional Republicans were one step closer to realizing their hopes for tax reform on Thursday as it appeared as though the House and Senate had reconciled nearly all of the legislation. Hearing the recommendations and concerns of the public, the Republicans preserved the current tax code’s deductions for student loans, medical bills, and added a $10,000 cap for state and local taxes. But of the three major network news outlets, NBC was the only one that left them out of their evening broadcast. Instead of reporting what was known to be in the GOP tax reform bill, NBC Nightly News...

    ‚ÄėThe Post,‚ÄĚ the new movie starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, is three things: a film about the Pentagon Papers, classified documents about the Vietnam War that were leaked to the media in 1971, a film about the press and Donald Trump, and, finally, an indictment¬†about Harvey Weinstein and sexism in Hollywood. According to Streep, who is interviewed on December 14 in the Washington Post, the film is mostly about sexism. Streep says that the new film came from a place of ‚Äúgrievance‚ÄĚ about sexism.¬† ‚ÄúPeople were really scared and demoralized [after Trump was elected],‚ÄĚ Streep told the Post. But...

    Axios ^ | 12/14/17 | Dan Primak & Sarah Fischer
    President Trump on Wednesday spoke with 21st Century Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch about an agreement whereby Fox will sell most of its entertainment assets to The Walt Disney Co. for $52.4 billion. Why it matters: Trump and Murdoch are old pals, but this conversation could raise accusations of political favoritism when it comes to regulatory approvals. Not only for Disney/Fox, but also for AT&T's attempted takeover of Time Warner. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders did not explicitly say that Trump supports the Disney-Fox deal, but did say that he believes it "could be a great thing for jobs." Reality...

    State attorneys general are now threatening lawsuits against the federal government's repeal of "net neutrality" rules. New York's attorney general says he'll lead a multistate lawsuit to stop the Federal Communications Commission's rollback of rules that guaranteed equal access to the internet. Democrat Eric Schneiderman has been investigating fake public comments submitted to the FCC during the net neutrality comment process. Schneiderman says his analysis shows 2 million comments stole the identities of real Americans, including dead people and children. The Washington state attorney general has likewise vowed to sue over net neutrality.

    Itís not much of an overstatement to say that the media are enjoying the Alabama upset. It is, among other things, a great story, one that feels as much like a cultural moment, coming in the midst of a fierce national debate over sexual harassment, as a political verdict. And there was the late-night drama of Doug Jones surging past Roy Moore in the final hour of vote-counting, producing a Democratic victory that once might have been hard to imagine. And before we get into the finger-pointing, these elements were overshadowed during the raucous campaign: Jones outspent Moore 10 to...

    I will call my friend Daniel. Daniel was tried and found not guilty of child molestation. He had fallen victim to a woman who hated men; she was also a pathological liar. A single mom, she asked numerous men to have ďthe talkĒ with her almost-teenage son, as his father was not in the picture. Daniel agreed to meet with the boy and the next thing he knew he was under arrest for something he had not done. Unfortunately the boy was complicit.
